NASA's Boeing Crew Flight Test is currently underway, with a launch date of early February 2023 planned.

The first astronaut flight on the company's CST-100 Starliner spacecraft is scheduled for early February 2023.

The teams practised the prelaunch timeline and responses to various launch event scenarios during an integrated crew exercise.

The astronauts will don spacesuits and board their crew module to inspect the vehicle systems and interfaces that support their health and safety.

Boeing's Starliner will launch on a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket from Space Launch Complex-41 at the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida for the crewed flight.

CFT will demonstrate the spacecraft's and rocket's ability to safely transport astronauts to and from the space station.

NASA will send two astronaut test pilots to the space station, Barry "Butch" Wilmore and Suni Williams.

The agency will begin the final certification process for the Starliner spacecraft and systems for crew missions to the space station.
